Picked this bottle up on a rainy night at South Bay.
A: Orange/honey-colored pour with a nice white fluffy cloud head measuring at least 3 fingers tall.
S: A mild "usual" sour smell. A bit earthy, hay and dust like qualities. Soft floral and light citrus.
T: A rich sour quality coats the tongue immediately, but fades out quickly. Faint sour citrus, likened to mild grapefruit, comes to mind.
M: Crisp and light sour. Pucker present up front, but nearly gone at the swallow.
D: An almost sessionable sour. Very good taste and classic presentation. I would find this a nice second or third step into sour beer for those just getting started. Or seasoned sour beer drinkers may find this one as a welcomed change of pace from some of today's extreme sour offering. Overall, a nice beer, but nothing to rant and rave about. Good stuff. Glad I got to try it.

Hazy golden straw color with a finger and a half of head that dissipates quickly. The nose has some artificial fruit aromas, like cherry kool-aid and grape kool-aid, clean pale malts, a slight vinous quality and some barnyard funk. I get wheat and bread yeast on the front of the tongue with a sharp sour attack on the way down, then a lemony finish and nice bready aftertaste. Drinkable, light, and highly carbonated.

Aroma: Tart, sweet.
Appearance: Hazy amber, not much head.
Flavor: Tart and sour up front, once sourness passes over palate get a nice peach/plum flavor, almost like a sour plum wine.
Mouthfeel: Medium, a little thick for a lambic, not as dry as a lambic should be.
Overall: Pretty good beer, not overly sour has a good fruity tart mix going on. I prefer a dryer less fruity gueuze than what this offers. a little too much like a sour plum wine for me.
Serving type: on-tap
